Everything is bigger in Texas, including their AHL team's spot in the standings entering todays game. Sitting in fourth place, the Texas Stars, affiliate of Dallas, were six spots ahead of the Toronto Marlies and looking to maintain that gap. On the other hand a win for the blue and white would tie them with Oklahoma City for the last playoff spot in the west (yes, it's very early, but still accurate). The result? A little bit of both; Texas picked up a point to help their push, and the Marlies grabbed a big pair with a shootout win.

The boys are back in town.

It's of my opinion that if a move were to be made, this was the right scenario. Here's why:

Leafs Postgame - First Niagara Loss Of The Year

I have to imagine that "Ehrhoff" will be seen as a curse word for the Toronto Maple Leafs as they head back home from Buffalo tonight. Turning a sure Leafs goal into the icing on the cake for the Sabres in less time than it takes to blink is nothing short of impressive, and probably one of the highlights of his last few years. But the Leafs aren't around to make opponents look good, but unfortunately did so tonight, dropping their first of back to back games against their 29th placed division rivals by a score of 3-1.
